Maine Veterans’ Benefits and Services Poster Now Available 

In June 2023, Maine passed a law requiring employers with more than 50 full-time equivalent employees to display a poster about veterans’ benefits and services. The poster had been unavailable but as of March 20, 2024, the state has released it, and employers should ensure that is posted as soon as possible. 

It is unclear how the state defines a full-time equivalent employee. Conservatively, employers may wish to post the poster if they have 50 or more employees regardless of full-time or part-time status. 

Next Steps 

Covered employers should ensure this poster is displayed in a conspicuous place that is accessible to employees as soon as possible. Employers with a remote workforce are encouraged to provide the notice to employees electronically. A copy of the poster can be downloaded here.  

Employers who need additional guidance on whether this requirement applies to their organization are encouraged to consult with legal counsel.
